Your Dream Car - But With A Twist ......

Recommended Posts

Everyone probably has a dream car they would buy if money was no object, etc.

BUT ... what was the car you always wanted as a child?

I think there were two for me

Dream Car #1) The Dakari Jeep

It wasn't so much that actual jeep, but the paint scheme - I would love those zebra stripes on a old pickup or something :drool:

Daktari was a great program :yes::yes:

Dream Car #2) The Lotus Europa

That is the real thing above, but the reason it was my dream car is below ....

Been in a sierra saphire cossie, Bl**dy quick, one minute they were £25000, then the insurance went thru the roof + all of a sudden you couldn't give them away, same with the escort cossie, bet you could pick one up now though Duncs, but dont let the misses drive it :lol:

(Maybe in a minority with my choices here.)

My absolute dream car from as early as I can remember is the Citroen DS.. Still is now, :yes: though it would depend on where I was living in the world to as which model of DS I would have.

That is actually ME sitting behind a DS.

:yes:

Though my parents love of the Camry has somewhat rubbed off on me & I genuinely find the Camry (SXV20) extremely attractive still.

Showing my age, I was impressionable and callow youth

mainly because of this, I'm afraid to say (you will need to set aside ten minutes to enjoy fully)

Had 3 of my favorites, Sierra Cosworth RS500, 1098cc MG Midget(Raced that one), MG Metro 6R4 ( only borrowed that one) but that was great fun especially in the wet.

Still waiting to drive the other 2. Genuine Cobra, and Lancia Stratos.

The Cobra and Midget go back to when i was at school.

Still a big kid at heart.

Apart from the fact that you could loose the rear end faster than you could say :help2: , and that after a few miles your feet were medium-to-well-done (thanks to the proximity of the exhaust) I agree this is the most beautiful motor. I spent a blissful couple of days in one, many, many years ago. It was red :wub:

Unforgettable

I thought being made in 1937 gives it the right to three pics. Respect the elders n'all...

I remember having a book on pre-war cars as a child which had a couple of pictures of the Cord "Coffin Lid" cars and wanted of of them.
